Abstract

This work summarizes the doctoral thesis with the same title. Concretely, the following topics are treated: 1) the application of a microscopic Jones matrix model to predict the spectral and colorimetric modulation in TN-LCD spatial light modulators, 2) the extended phase depth modulation phenomenon in such devices, 3) the study of the complex modulation of modulators by means of Pancharatnam's phase, and 4) some experimental set-ups developed during the thesis.

En concreto, se tratan los siguientes aspectos: 1) la aplicación de un modelo microscópico de matrices de Jones para la predicción de la modulación espectral y colorimétrica de pantallas TN-LCD, 2) el fenómeno de la modulación extendida de fase en pantallas TN-LCD, 3) el estudio de la modulación compleja de moduladores mediante la fase de Pancharatnam y 4) algunos sistemas experimentales desarrollados en la tesis.
